Stuart Jessop Helps Residents in Preventing Public Noise Nuisance

December 1, 2016

Stuart Jessop has successfully represented a group of residents in their Review of the premises licence of a restaurant in Southwark. The Licensing Sub-committee heard evidence from the residents, about the level of public nuisance, who described the noise from patrons of the restaurant and from tables and chairs being moved as being so loud that it interfered with their sleep.

Stuart submitted, on behalf of the residents, that conditions should be added to the licence in order to promote the licensing objective of Preventing Public Nuisance. The  Sub-committee decided to add conditions to the licence preventing various activities between certain periods of time.


I met Stuart when I was on the opposing side in a recent licensing appeal. Since that time Woods Whur have instructed him in matters, in the most recent of which he won and had costs awarded in our client's favour. I would have no hesitation in recommending him.

He elicits and analyses the evidence and advises clients clearly on the prospects of success. We recommend Mr Jessop to clients without hesitation.

He is positive where others are negative, he shows dogged determination to deliver the right result for his client. I have no hesitation in recommending him - top class.
